Chunk Machine

It may have been murky when bottling and when first on draft, but by the time I poured to enjoy this unfiltered double IPA, it was chunky. An enjoyable West Coast double IPA, but nothing outstanding.


Destination Unknown 

A delish 8% ABV double IPA in the NE hazy-style, from the fine folks at Alvarado Street Brewery.   Found this gem at the Solana Beach BC.
